Yay for progress! Losing the mucous plug and dilation sounds like great signs. Hope labour puts a crimp in their plans for the 22nd!
Seriously, doesn't it annoy the heck out of you when they decide when your due date is, when you know when you conceived/ovuated. I O'd on cd 18, so I made sure I gave them a LMP that matched that instead of my real one. Glad you got of there and baby is doing well!
Here's hoping that your LO will make their grand entrance soon!!!
Oooohhhh, how exciteing I bet your really close, and I'm looking forward to following the rest of your updates!!
Alright baby , time to make your arrival!!
Nothing too exciting last night, and nothing new this morning.
It was confirmed at yesterday's ultrasound that baby is completely posterior and I can't help but wonder if this position is preventing spontaneous labour, or if my body really just needs to bake babies a little longer. The persistent OP position would prevent a constant and even pressure on the cervix. I try to be mindful of my posture and positioning and I spend time on my hands and knees and leaning over my birthball, it just seems like s/he never wants to move from this position.
I feel better that most babies, even if persistently OP, will turn during labour... but it's less likely when you try to induce!
My GP said I didn't need to make another appointment with him since I had that consult yesterday, but I made one for Friday anyway. It may be my last chance for an effective sweep before my appointment on Monday.
And I finally had Rob take a belly picture of me last night.
